Copenhagen Distortion Festival 2010 is coming...

Every year I look forward to the first few days of June when the Copenhagen Distortion Festival hits the streets. This year it's from June 2-6, 2010. If you are living in a hole or a similar dark space in Copenhagen and somehow missed the party in the past few years, understand that in 2009 there were over 60 events attended by nearly 40,000. It really is a hell of a party - though obviously the weather has a big impact on how it all plays out. My personal favourite 2 days are the Nørrebro and Vesterbro street parties, which I never miss if I can help it.

We're filming an episode of in during Nørrebro Distortion on Thursday, and we've even lined up an interview Mr. Distortion himself, Thomas Fleurquin, who is the mastermind behind the whole thing - from when it was a tiny little bit of madness attended by a select few party people back in 2001 to now. I'm really looking forward to chatting with him about it.

Do yourself a favour and check out the party at least one of the nights.

June 2 - Center of city

Carnival in Copenhagen

It ain't Brazil, but it's a lot of fun. Check out the latest episode of - all about annual The Copenhagen Carnival that happens the last weekend of May each year. Actually, in all my years in Denmark, I'd never actually been to the parade, only the carnival itself in Faelledparken. Quite a spectacle. Enjoy!

A date with some delicious beer - Espisode #50 of

This week was all about the beer in Episode #50 of We spent a few hours at the annual Copenhagen Beer Festival (Øl Festival) that happened last week.

So let me make a few quick comments about this episode.

Firstly, I think this was my favourite episode so far, and not just because of the beer. We've been working hard to bring our production and editing up to the next level, and I think this episode truly succeeded. Of course, that also demands something of the hosts to make it possible, and we're trying!

Secondly, I've become a huge fan of Danish beer over the years - and I am not talking about Carlsberg. There are many Danish micro-breweries these days producing more and better beer than ever. If you ask me, by far the best one we tasted during this episode was Bøgedal, which is brewed in the most low-tech manner possible, making each batch unique. It really was something else to taste, so it wasn't just the lack of technology in the production that made it special. I'll definitely be returning to the beer festival next year.

Hope you enjoy!

One day of the year for a guaranteed party...or demonstration - Episode #49 of is up

Episode #49 of is up...this one we shot in Fælledparken initially, but then had to add in some additional green-screening when thanks to some microphone problems we had during the shoot - but in end everything worked out, as we still ended up with loads of good 'film' from Fælledparken on May 1. We also took some time to answer a bunch of viewer questions in the last part of the episode.
